Alessondra who is nine, rocks her 80’s hair-do and long dress, deviating from the usual pageant attire. But Carley who is five and mom Melissa who tell a timeless story of perseverance and the strive for perfection going for the grand supreme title. Who will win? You will have to watch and see.
You will learn from the show tonight that you do not have to spend a fortune on pagent dresses for little girls when Alessondra’s mom, who has dubbed herself the “Frugal Mom” creates a gorgeous look for her daughter by reusing the slip from her own wedding dress, and purchasing her daughter a $9 dress for the pageant. If you were not already wondering why people spent thousands on a dress for their two year old daughter, you will wonder after seeing this video below.
